It has been some time since I have made an entry in my blog.   I hope to do it more regularly now that I havc a new computer.    My meditation today is from Isaiah 62:  “The Lord delights in you.”   It so good to know that the Lord delights in me at all times and in all circumstances.  Help me, Lord, never to forget this.


MONDAY, AUGUST 4, 2014 – ST J0HN MARY VIANNEY, WHOSE FEAST WE CELEBRATE TODAY, WAS A GREAT PRIEST AND WONDERFUL CATECHECIAL INSTRUCTOR. He tells us that the glorious duty of man is to pray and to love. It is in loving and praying that our happiness lies. Lord, teach us how to love and pray.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 1, 2014 – FEAST OF BLESSED JUNIPERO SERRA – May he intercede for us that we may always and everywhere be joined to Jesus Christ in love, and bring His love to all people.

THURSDAY, JULY 3, 2014 – The words from Eph. 2 are my meditation for today: “Brothers and sisters: You are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones and membes of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the Apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone.” We are a temple sacred to Our Lord. We are a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

TUESDAY, JULY 1, 2014 – Today is the feast of Blessed Junipero, priest. Lord, grant us by his intercession that we may join our hearts to Him in love and carry Him always and everywhere to all we meet.

 The reading from today’s Mass is from Amos 20 and is a  reminder to us that we cannot save ourselves.  We need the Lord’s corrections  and His grace to change.   Thank You, Lord, for all your loving corrections and the purifying  work of Your Spirit.  Help me to accept everything that You do to make me a new creation.

TUESDAY, MAY 20, 2014 – We use John 14:31 to meditate on today: “The world must know that I love the Father.” Jesus asks us to make His Father known. We pray and ask You, Lord. to make us into your witnesses so we can help change tje world.



My prayer today is:  “Lord, show me how I betray You.  I don’t want to betray You , but I do through my sins.  Help me, my God, for Your Name’s sake.”


“…be  stouthearted and wait for the Lord. ”   We pray this  in the antiphon at the beginning of Mass today.  It is a good prayer to repeat and do as we go through the day.   BE STOUTHEARTED!   I like the term STOUTHEARTED and I want to be that in my following of the Lord.
